No, the RF box has been de-soldered.

Has anybody read the rest of this thread?

See that diagram I posted on the last page to wire up the video and audio. For power you need to build a 7805 circuit. If you haven't found a diagram by tomorrow I'll post one, it's really late right now and I don't feel like making one.

Ok, so I finally gave in and bought Ben's book off Amazon Used.

However, I might have tossed one of the parts that I need that came off with the RF Box. Is that really bad?

Not really. You'd just have to buy another one. If it's the regulator, I can sell you one.

Ok, so I've read the part in Ben's book about adding a regulator to your NES so that you don't fry it. However, I am wondering if there are differences between a 7v or 9v and a 120v power cord, which is what I want to attach to my NES (no more stupid connectors, just plug it in and you have power). He lists a specific part number from a Radio Shack store, but do you need a different part for a considerable higher voltage?

Also attached it a pic of where it should go...is it bad that there is no more metal on one of the Power/Reset switches?

120v? coneected directly to the 7805? Ha, you make me laugh.

If you want to sell an overclocked GBC, look at the trader forum here: http://8bitcollective.com/forums/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Make sure you read their trading rules first so you don't get burned.

Backlight-ed DMG's with overclock are frequently drooled over at that place.
Emulation isn't accurate. There is no substitute for real hardware!

...thanks...

anyways, that's why I'm asking first. Would it work or no? If not, what would work?

no, it would not work. try something like, 7v to 12v.

Ok, then do I need two resistors? One to go from ~120v to 7v-9v, and then another to bring the 7v/9v down to 5v?

Hold on there cowboy! You should probably hack up a wall wart instead of attempting to convert 120AC to 5DC. Check around the house for a wall wart power supply with a rating of 7.2v (DC) or higher and 1000mA (1A) or higher. You can wire that directly to the 7805 to get 5v.

Is there a way to do it without a brick? I would like a plain old plug-in cord, like vomitsaw did with his "Nintoaster".

No. You need the brick. Skyones telling you to pop open the brick and put all that inside. Thats how Vomitsaw did it. Go down to his progrss shots. The forth one in the top row shows the guts of the brick going to the 7805.
